Chicken-Bacon Salad

Please share:

Last Updated on July 6, 2020

Well, this isn’t really a recipe so much as it is a guideline, maybe an explanation of how a typical salad is assembled around here. Because I seriously get lazy with trying to figure out what the heck to put in a salad, so it’s usually the same ‘ole stuff every time. But at least it’s delicious, so there’s always that. My favorite dressing to use on all my salads is my Fruit Vinaigrette Dressing. But it’s not really fruity. Whatever, it’s good, that’s all that matters. And if you have the chance to grab some Tessamae’s Dressings, the Zesty Ranch is delicious on this salad!

Chicken-Bacon Salad

Yield: 2
Prep Time: 10 minutes
Cook Time: 10 minutes
Total Time: 20 minutes


  • 5 slices of Bacon, I love kitchen shears for this, cut into 1/2" pieces
  • 1 pieces Chicken Breast or Thigh, dark meat is best, IMO, cut into 1/2"
  • Mixed Greens
  • Carrot, diced
  • Cucumber, diced
  • Hard Boiled Egg, no yolks, diced
  • Apple, chopped
  • Small Grapes, halved
  • Blanched Slivered Almonds
  • Sunflower Seed Kernels


  1. Put the bacon pieces in a cold skillet and turn it on to Medium. Fry the bacon until it's crispy and remove with a slotted spoon and drain on paper towels. Leave the grease in the skillet.
  2. Add your chicken to the hot pan and cook it in the bacon grease. Cook until the chicken is no longer pink. Remove with a slotted spoon and drain on paper towels.
  3. Prepare the salad by mixing your greens with anything else. I use all the ingredients above. Use what makes you happy.
  4. Drizzle your favorite dressing on it and eat. Yum!

If I am prepping this the night before, can I add apple or should I add it right before eating? Just don't want it to turn brown and I don't think my husband would take the time to cut it up and add. Thanks!

The apple can be added ahead of time, but if you don't want it to brown, soak the apple pieces in water with some lemon juice added. Strain then add to the salad.

What do you mean by IMO? I’ve seen it a couple of times in your recipes but don’t know what it means.

Thanks Jessica
